Pleasant Ridge & Ferndale Evaluating Walking and Biking on Woodward, Survey Available
(City of Ferndale, City of Pleasant Ridge, March 30, 2019)
How is the experience of walking and biking along Woodward Ave.? That’s precisely what the Cities of Ferndale and Pleasant Ridge aim to find out with a new grant-funded safety audit.
The cities will be evaluating the biking and walking safety along the main thoroughfare—an important step towards implementing the vision and recommendations of the Woodward Avenue Complete Streets Plan to make the corridor safe and inviting for all road users. The cities were awarded a $40,000 SEMCOG (Southeast Michigan Council of Governments) Planning Assistance grant to study safety for pedestrians and people on bikes.
The study will assess current conditions, engage the community, and provide detailed design recommendations that allow for flexibility with future transit. The process includes:
